Gleaming new flooring, gorgeous new window displays, fabulously flattering new lighting, a prettied-up powder room and the addition of a third fitting room—the Winnie Couture Houston flagship salon has a fresh new look. What hasn’t changed at Winnie Couture is the doting attention brides have come to expect from this haven of heavenly gowns by Hong-Kong-born, Houston-educated and now Beverly-Hills-based designer Winnie Chlomin. Of course, there are the gowns themselves…form-fitting, feminine and lavished with Chlomin’s signature Swarovski sparkle. Now through Saturday, Aug. 12, Winnie Couture is celebrating its makeover with a splendid re-opening sale, complete with a 20% discount on all gowns. Call today for your appointment!
This here post has a twofold job: To let you know about Mia Bridal Couture’s WOW Watters spring 2013 trunk show today through Saturday AND to remind you that today is your last chance to enter to win Mia’s Stella & Dot necklace giveaway!
The show: Gorgeous, whisper-soft, diaphanous new styles from Watters’ breathlessly romantic spring 2013 collection (plus a few chic minis for you two-frock brides), which you’ll get a chance to discuss with Watters VP Maria Prince, live and in person. Appointments are a must, so make yours right about NOW!
The giveaway: Two lucky ladies each will receive a stunning Stella & Dot necklace, and two runners-up will score sparkling stud earrings, just for posting a picture of their favorite Watters gown on Mia’s Facebook page, along with a comment about why you’re madly in the love with that particular Watters gown, by end of day TODAY.

Three days of Rivini. Three days of pure, perfect silhouettes majestically embellished with exquisite hand-beading and a sprinkle of sparkle. Three days of Rita Vinieris’ incredible talent for blending crisp lines with breathless femininity. At Mia Bridal Couture. Starting Thursday. Appointments are a must, make one you shall. This is the Houston unveiling of Rivini spring 2013, after all. ’Nuff said.
Rivini, Liancarlo, Anne Barge, Badgley Mischka, Lazaro…Ivory Bridal Atelier’s gown inventory reads like a Who’s Who of the most revered (and, let’s face it, some of the priciest) bridal designers on the planet. If you think this kind of couture is a little, ahem, out of your league—and even if you don’t—you may want to set your alarm on the early side this Sunday. That’s when Houston’s West Ave gem unloads gorgeous, pristine-condition sample dresses at prices 30-70% off retail. Bride-plus-one-guest-only, gowns sizes 6-10, no appointments necessary, first-come, first-served, four hours only, starting 11 a.m. We don’t need to tell you to be nice, now, do we? Happy shopping, Houston brides-to-be!
